Fun Friday Friends Blox

Collections Overlap

Lego Friends and American Girl Mega Blox

Doll Comparison

Grace, Haley, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Lea, Melody, 2 or more

The other day we finally opened our American Girl Mega Blox figure and had her visit the calendar scene.
That's when we noticed a difference.
Or many differences and had to share them with you.
So here you can see Tanya, our name for her, with Friends Andrea. Tanya looks like Andrea's big sister!
Back to back Andrea only comes up to Tanya's shoulder.
Do you notice something else in that picture? Tanya has knees! More on that later.
Both can sit, but we had to take Tanya's skirt off. She won't sit with it on.
Because she has knees, she can sit well perched too.
Tanya actually has articulation or joint movement in her shoulders too.
And her hips swivel a bit; I mean her legs can turn other than just bending and sitting.
This is kind of neat, but makes taking her apart to change skirts strange.
Also takes more time to get her to stand, because everything has to be aligned just so.
Tanya is one of eight in series one of the American Girl Mega Blox single figure release.
Each mini doll comes with a stand.
Plus one interchangeable component. In Tanya's case it is her skirt. The little poster shows you each dolls extra piece.
I have a feeling all the wigs are too. But these pieces can't be shared with the Friends dolls because the Mega Blox wigs have a peg and the Friends have a divot. Plus the Friends heads are much smaller.
Tanya's feet can be anchored on a Lego. Yay!

(giggles) Tanya could be the headmistress of the Beauxbatons Academy and the Friends her students!

Do you have any of the American Girl Mega Blox single figures or sets? If yes, which ones?

Best wishes!
